How to Stream the 2020 Oscar-Nominated Movies

Viewers with Netflix and Hulu accounts have plenty of this year’s Oscar nominees at their fingertips. Others can still catch up on films through sites like Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, and iTunes, though it will cost money to rent or buy them. Some of the international feature films are unavailable by any means, though those with a VPN may want to explore content in Poland for Corpus Christi, and France for Les Miserables, if they’re eager to catch all the documentaries before the Oscars.

Streaming Through a VPN

Many who can’t access conventional streaming platforms might want to consider using a VPN to catch this year’s Oscar nominees. Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime subscribers out of the country or living abroad can use a VPN to access US content without being blocked. As stated above, a VPN could also come in handy for streaming international films or using non-traditional platforms.
